Well you would hope that there is a detailed plan of how the club is going to compete at this level and manage that loan..........

I don't doubt that IC will work miracles with the tools at his disposal, but will that be enough ?

Does anyone have any info on how Harrogate are funded ? I ask because they seem to be an unfashionable club with limited past history who have found a way to compete successfully.

Goodness, that's hefty. What's the term I wonder......if it's 20 years that would be £24 k a year at first......so Kiaro's fee would just cover that and little else !

Well if it's Chesterfield again, then it has to be  Gyasi......the only one to really show, given that King moved to Lynn to be in the area, Callan McF likewise and Carey would go higher if he were to go.


If it's not Chesterfield, then it could just be the keeper Richardson finishing his loan if Mair is coming back, but  to be honest Mall, the way things are  going it could be anyone, for a number of different reasons. Perhaps there's been an offer for another one of the furloughed guys, who would rather be playing.

I've asked my Dad, but he doesn't know either  :laughcry:

the problem we have with selling players  clubs with money know our financial position and they buy them on the cheap
and  I assume most players are on a season by season   contract which  they can walk away from at the end of the season.
Not a great situation to be in but it is what it is - the chairman is only trying to make ends meet.
as for next season I imagine the average attendance will be somewhere around 1500. Come September when the furlough scheme ends I can see lots of people being made unemployed and they wont have the money to pay for the luxury of watching football.


Obviously a cup half full type of guy :laughcry:

Possibly someone else that Chesterfield liked the look of on Saturday.....it seems to be the way they operate

I have only heard of Colchester, Bournemouth and Swansea being interested in Sonny.

Are there others ?

There's reportedly more money swashing around in the NL than there is in League 2 and Colchester are near the bottom. ........but if a Championship were interested that should be a significant sum.

Well it's a game of opinions Non League !  I can see your argument if the situation re Covid doesn't improve for 3/4 seasons, but otherwise a crowd of 2000 has to be a very conservative estimate of what should be achieved, so dissecting the calculation up as you have done makes little sense to me and in any case, it's the principle that I am making that is important......if you genuinely believe that £25k is a significant sum in National League terms, then I think you are way off beam.
If Lynn are going to survive in the NL they have to start thinking like a NL club..........the attendance for example will have to be nearer 3000 average I would suggest, other income streams and sponsorship will need to be increased, there will have to be good use of more local talent, and connections developed, including loan deals. It's a massive shift from what Lynn have been in the past...it won't happen overnight, but it has to happen fairly quickly. SC can't keep pulling financial rabbits out of his own personal hats.......and as for selling two of the best players in successive seasons each for £25k and still staying in the league... that's just fanciful.

I think that's a timely word in support of our Chairman Dilly. The last few months must have been incredibly difficult for him on many levels........having brought unprecedented success to the club before this season started. Hopefully IC sticks with it, because if the crowds are allowed back, next season will be special at The Walks and I feel SC's input and commitment deserves that.

Many on here are concerned about next season, and understandably so.  If, however, SC and IC can keep the ship afloat, we start next season, (if Covid allows), with big potential.  I base this on the York crowd, and the fact weíll have as big a game as that every fortnight !  If we are doing well, we can pull in some of the BEST crowds in that league, and therefore swell the coffers to a level that will attract better players.  Every reason to be cheerful, IMHO.  I must deliver a Dilly-downer, however, for my honoured fellow scribes....  I didnít rate Kairo Mitchell, and donít think we have reduced the teamís capabilities by selling him !!!!!  Sad we lost Marriott, but we have Southwell, who will thrive with better attack-minded players around him.  I hope we keep Carey and King, but who knows......

Hi Dilly agree re positive notes and     Richards, King and Carey would be great if we could keep all 3.

Game of opinions tho as highlighted by your comments re the forwards......for me we have had the best of Marriott and haven't reduced our forward options much by his going to Eastleigh, particularly as our system has changed and he relied heavily on that, whereas Mitchell was just coming into his own.

Exactly Non League......for the first time this season I feel really exasperated, as I saw Mitchell as a great find and a main stay for next season........so goodness knows how IC is currently feeling.
Callan-McF has been the most important find IMO....great central defender at this level and local connections, so hopefully we can hold on to him and the full backs and that at least gives us some platform...really important to have a core of locally based players, so the likes of McCauley, Clunan, Gascoigne, Jones, Richardson, Gash etc could be important going forward.....tho for some of them age is not on their side and there are questions as to whether some are really good enough at this high level.
Maybe the club needs to be tougher in negotiations ? On a crowd of 2000, takings would be 40-50k.... that's for each home game. On that basis £25k for Mitchell, doesn't seem much of a return to me.

Absolutely gs, £25k is peanuts at this level and people posting on here need to wake up to that IMHO
Improved income streams are required urgently...how long have some us been saying that. Mitchell really is one for the future....Lynn haven't a cat in hells chance of competing next season if they sell off the gains/findsof this year and start from scratch again in a few months. They seem to have the old small club mentality of previous years...happy to be a small club, find develop sell on and don't stand in the player's way of progression........if a guy signs for a year then he should IMO be encouraged to honour that, otherwise players will be picked off again over the next 6 months, Lynn will quickly find themselves back in NLN and the dream will be well and truly over. Good strikers are hard to find........in the space of 6 months we have lost Loza, Marriott and Mitchell.........take a quick look at the high scorers for the club for this season and consider how we will fare if we can't replace them.
